Next-generation library catalogs and the problem of slow response time (December 2010)

Author: Brown-Sica, Margaret S.; Beall, Jeffrey; McHale, Nina
Subject: online library catalogs; information retrieval; internet searching
Publisher: American Library Association
Language: English
Collection: auraria; additional_collections


Response time as defined for this study is the time that it takes for all files that constitute a single webpage to travel across the Internet from a Web server to the end user's browser. In this study, the authors tested response times on queries for identical items in five different library catalogs, one of them a next-generation(NextGen) catalog. The authors also discuss acceptable response time and how it may affect the discovery process. They suggest that librarians and vendors should develop standards for acceptable response time and use it in the product selection and development processes.
